    ...strong showing by XC90 leads the way for increase in the United States.

    IRVINE, CA (April 1, 2003) - For the fifth consecutive month, Volvo Cars of North America, LLC (VCNA) reports a sales increase in the US despite soft industry sales overall. For March the sales increase is 25.8 percent over the previous year with a near-record total of 12,245 units sold.

    &nbsp; &nbsp; Overall, Volvo&#39;s NAFTA nations recorded 13,553 unit sales for the month, representing an increase of 25.6 percent.

    &nbsp; &nbsp; Says Vic Doolan, President and CEO of Volvo Cars of North America: &quot;Our award winning new SUV - the Volvo XC90 - has helped to deliver this superb March result, rounding up a significant first quarter for us in the North American market.&quot;

    &nbsp; &nbsp; Volvo&#39;s first SUV continues to be in great demand, with pre-orders extending through the summer.

    &nbsp; &nbsp; &quot;In addition to XC90 sales, the S40, V40 and V70 have all contributed to our March result,&quot; said Doolan. &quot;We are also in the enviable position that our demand for all-wheel-drive versions of the S60 and XC70 ranges, exceeds supply.&quot;

    &nbsp; &nbsp; Elsewhere in North America, total sales in Canada were 1,125 - a 31.4 percent increase for March.

    &nbsp; &nbsp; Looking ahead, Doolan noted, &quot;Strong wholesales during the month indicate that our dealers too are confident that our product range is in demand. We aim to continue this growth throughout the remainder of 2003.&quot;

    Volvo UK are offering 1500 (&#036;2355) off every new V70 here in the UK. That`s over and above what discount you may be able to negotiate with the dealer. That 1500 can be used towards optional extras or as a straight reduction off the purchase price. Whether this price reduction is to stimulate interest or maintain interest in the range, I do not know.

    slender:

    That discount sounds very similar to the USA&#39;s recent Free Premium Package (worth &#036;2,595) offered from around Nov&#39;02 thru Jan&#39;03 in conjunction with the OSD purchase.

    I guess, if you&#39;re in the UK market for a new auto and the Volvo is appealing this would be a good time to buy.

    Is the discount ONLY on V70 models?

    Good morning, Barry (late afternoon over here, mind you)

    No, the discount is available across the range but it is slightly less on 40 and 60 models. I`m not sure what the deal is on the 80 models.

    I`ve had a fair bit of promotional literature from my local dealer on new and used Volvos just recently. I kinda think they`re not flying off the forecourt right now.
